Do you sometimes feel like you don't fit in? Do you feel that relationships and events from your past are holding you back? Is something that happened to you recently preying on your mind and making you anxious or depressed? Is your work consuming you, leaving little time to appreciate and enjoy other areas of your life? These are just some of the things that can make dealing with your life seem too much. You can then feel powerless and unable to see a way forward. Exploring these and other issues in a safe and neutral space can help to find a way through. We can also look at strategies and ways to cope on a day to day basis.

Some feelings and problems are hard to understand or to bear. Sometimes they are overwhelming in their intensity or sometimes we just feel stuck, as if things will never change. They may arise from a sudden personal crisis or from a relationship or from ongoing anxiety or depression. They can belong to the present but can also be rooted in painful experiences from the past. Psychotherapy offers a way to think about what is happening in the present, reflect on patterns and links from the past and explore how change can happen.

Life can be complicated and present challenges which may feel too difficult to navigate alone. Sometimes, we could all do with some support and I hope that I am able to help you if you are feeling like this. As your therapist, I will not give you advice or tell you what to do. I am here to facilitate the space and together we will explore your inner thoughts and emotions, so that you feel empowered to change was isn’t working for you. Exploration in counselling can be incredibly powerful and it can also be very challenging. I am here to listen, we will work at your own pace and I will support you every step of the way.

Sometimes life can be a struggle and leave us feeling anxious and depressed. You might be going through something specific, such as a bereavement or relationship difficulties. You may have unresolved issues from your past. Or you may be feeling overwhelmed by the sources of stress in your life and unsure of how to move forward. Therapy can help with all of this.

Feeling the fallout of a loved one’s addiction? Addiction affects the whole family. It affects how you communicate, how you behave and how you feel. Trust is often broken - so knowing who to reach out to can feel risky. Turning to family and friends only leave you feeling more isolated and misunderstood. Maybe you have tried self help groups but they haven’t quite ‘hit the mark’. Turning to the person you love with an addiction only leaves you feeling frustrated and mistrusting. But… Relax. Here, you don’t have to do it alone. Download my free guide for those dealing with a loved one's addiction here on my website.

I work one to one with adults 18 years+ in either short- or long-term counselling/psychotherapy. I have experience working with both men and women on a wide range of issues, including relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression and bereavement. Grief is a complex mix of emotional and physical distress, I find it immensely rewarding helping people to find themselves again after loss. In my role at The Royal Marsden, I support those undergoing cancer treatment, and so chronic health and pain issues are also areas I work with. My other area of expertise is in pregnancy and reproductive complications/trauma.

I wonder if you have been feeling sad, stressed or anxious? Have these feelings been with you for a long time? Are you wondering when they will reappear? It’s like dreading what is around the corner and finding it hard to enjoy or feel good in the present. Other people look like they’re having fun but your world is a shade of grey. Things that you loved doing no longer give you happiness and it's hard to concentrate. At times it takes lots of energy to go out or spend time with people who care about you. Your confidence and ability to cope disappear as you become stuck and the people around you become as worn down as you feel.

I work online or in person. Together we will make sense of your current situation and challenges, and identify the ways in which our work together would best serve you. Most of us were not shown how to understand and interact with our emotions and feelings so when faced with complex situations or unfamiliar feelings, it can feel too much to bear alone. As a Psychotherapist in Advanced Training I offer a safe space and empathetic attitude to support you through the challenges you are facing. Through increased clarity and self awareness you may develop new skills and ways of being in the world which are more satisfying and nourishing.

Life events can sometimes leave a legacy whereby we can feel stuck, confused or overwhelmed beyond our usual strategies that used to work well. Counselling can enable you to see with greater clarity, act in ways that are more compassionate towards yourself and feel a more meaningful connection with others. Gestalt therapy is an action therapy rather than a talking therapy: This means that part of the therapy journey can often involve using the awareness gained within sessions to try out new ways of doing things; this can give you more tools to navigate challenging situations and enhance the quality of your life!

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
